Night School: Fundamentals of Connection Design (2 of 8)

Brush up on our connection design skills with this 12-hour course (eight 1.5-hour sessions) presented by Brad Davis and Matthew Eatherton!

The course delivers foundational instruction in the analysis and design of connections starting with discussions on critical bolt and weld limit states. We’ll dive right into practical design examples and also take a comprehensive look at shear connections. In the second half of the course, we’ll introduce the design of moment, bracing, and seismic connections.

Session 2: Fundamental Concepts, Part I, discusses bolt holes in calculations, basic weld related limit states and detailing, eccentric bolted and welded connections, direct loaded tension connections, block shear, the Whitmore Section, and light bracing connections. Design examples will be presented to demonstrate concepts discussed.
